Mile after mile, NANOspikes footwear traction provides unrivaled comfort, grip and performance when running on icy streets, roads and sidewalks. Ten extremely wear-resistant tungsten carbide spikes per foot bite into frozen surfaces and highly durable dual-compound TPU traction plates feature specialized inserts that disburse impact forces. NANOspikes also allow users to safely transition between dry and slippery pavement without affecting the natural running motion, providing the high performance road runners demand so they can train and stay outside all year round.
  • Highly durable, wear-resistant tungsten carbide spikes are held in place with a lightweight aluminum anchor. Ten spikes per foot bite into ice and snow while a surrounding TPU cleat provides added traction and shock absorption.
  • A soft outer compound provides wear-resistance and flexibility, and aids in snow release, while a hard inner compound near the spikes disperses force against the outsole of footwear. Additional upward-facing traction ensures NANOspikes stay in place against footwear.
  • Reinforced using durable TPU inserts, the patented eyelet design prevents tearing at each connection point, allowing the elastomer band to be lighter and stronger.
  • Provides added security and prevents the toe from pushing through the front of the elastomer harness. Allows for easy pull-back and removal.
  • Best Use: Road running, walking, Terrain: City streets and sidewalks, Conditions: Ice, hard-packed snow, Footwear: Road running shoes
